Females by nature want to adorn themselves in order to enhance their appeal and beauty. Aside from using other methods of making themselves beautiful, making tattoos in their body becomes more popular among women. They believed that tattoo designs for women makes them more attractive and sexier. However, proper choice of design is important so that it would appear more artistic and natural. Popular design It is not just enough to choose a tattoo because it is important that the design would suit your personality. Keep in mind that the style would reflect your personality that is why you need to select one that has a positive impact. Among the many tattoo designs for women, daisy is the commonly used. This flower symbolizes innocence and femininity during the early years as well as it symbolizes peace. Aside from flowers you can also pick other designs such as angel wings, stars, butterflies, Chinese letters and even your zodiac symbols. Nevertheless, always remember to place the tattoo on the appropriate place for perfect results. Appropriate Body Parts To Put Tattoo The tattoo designs for women can be placed in different area depending on the location they are designed. The common places that most girls make tattoos are on the ankle, leg, abdomen, lower back and at the back of the neck. When you make tattoo in your ankle it would be more attractive when you wear a stilettos or a chic pair of shoes. You can make a fashion statement out of making tattoos that is considered as fashion trend. On the other hand, before you decide to make tattoo in any part of your body you should bear in mind that the procedure can cause pain and discomfort. The ankle and the leg are the body parts that are susceptible to bleeding. That is why utmost care should be taken into consideration especially on the first few days after you acquire the tattoo. It is also recommended to elevate your tattooed legs to avoid bleeding. You can easily find tattoo designs for women in magazines, books and even in the internet. Make sure that you choose the right design appropriate to your character. In this way you can ensure that you can carry it well as well as it could add beauty and allure. However, choosing the appropriate style is not an easy task because you have to consider your character as well as the impression it would project to other people. If you want to have body art of any designs keep in mind that it should be more appealing to feminine charm and at the same time produce a positive impression.
Whilst the individual style and design of a tattoo remains the most important aspect of your newly acquired ink, the placement on the body follows closely in importance. How and where you display your tattoo will have a factor in how it is admired. I first visited a tattoo parlour back in the mid eighties to get my first tattoo, there wasn't a woman in sight. The two resident tattoo artists were both (very macho) males, the waiting room was full of an assortment of bikers, armed forces personnel and young men like me. In fact I don't recall seeing many females frequent my tattoo parlour at all when I was starting my tattoo journey. Any that did walk in were usually accompanying their male partners whilst they got inked. Nowadays the scene is very different. I have personally been tattooed by a very talented female artist. A tattoo studio is no longer a male only testosterone filled haunt. Women have and will continue to get tattooed in their masses and whilst it was once frowned upon by the general public, now it is accepted. My wife is heavily tattooed. I remember the days in the summer when we would walk around the local supermarket and attracted stares of revulsion from young mothers and little old ladies! That doesn't happen anymore, nowadays most women I see in the that supermarket have some sort of tattoo. Some are more heavily tattooed now than my wife! I still maintain, as I did in my article regarding male tattoos, that tattoos look great in most places of the body, regardless of gender. There are however some keys places that are more beneficial to each gender. It is also worth remembering that generally men and women get tattooed for different reasons. Women tend to go for personal tattoos with more meaning behind them, and thus sometimes feel more comfortable hiding them in discrete locations, whereas men tend to like to show their tattoos off. So, if we're talking about places for tattoos on women, which body locations are ideal? 1. Arms. Usually a male preference, women are now expressing their tattoos on their arms. Whilst the muscle definition isn't as pronounced as on the males arm, the advantage of arm placement is that excessive body hair shouldn't be a problem! I've seen some truly fantastic full sleeve designs on women. I think that is the key, long flowing tattoos tend to work better on the slender arms rather than individual designs placed on the biceps and forearms. A point to make here is that there is nothing discreet about the arms. People will see it, and likely more often than on males due to the difference in clothing each gender wears. 2. Chest. Breast tattoos have always been popular, particularly when the placement is at the top of the breast. This area lends itself well to smaller designs. Be advised that, again due to the clothing women tend to wear, this tattoo will be highly visible. 3. Head/Face. You can now have beauty spots, eyeliner and other image enhancing ideas tattooed permanently. I have seen this from time to time on women. It is the only facial tattoo I have seen. A head tattoo is not likely to be an option as women tend to prefer hair on their heads. 4. Neck. Another display issue for women but this can be an advantage. It is common to see women place tattoos on the back of the neck rather than the side. With the benefit of longer hair this tattoo can be hidden discreetly when chosen, or displayed in full glory when the hair is tied back. 5. Back. A very popular location for women, the back offers the benefit of discretion should you choose not to show the tattoo off. The lower back is more preferable as low-cut dresses will still hid the design. Full back pieces will work depending on the design but it is not discreet and is definitely for the hardcore tattoo fan. If you're going for a bigger design a popular choice is to go for something that flows elegantly from one side of the back to another part of the body. 6. Legs Tattooing the upper leg is a favourite female body location. If offers the benefits of discretion but can be showed of in the summer with swimwear. The lower leg is also popular, as are now the ankles and feet which can be showed off in the summer with the right footwear, or hidden when desired. 7. Hands I'm seeing a lot of these nowadays, A popular choice of design is some form of script on the side of the hands. Lets face it, a lady's hand is far more attractive than a guy's hand in that it is likely to be hair free and often adorned with jewellery and polish. A small intricate tattoo can enhance the hand, but this is in no way a discreet location. You need to plan ahead and consider what the tattoo will look like in years to come. The hands are one of the most exposed parts of the body and will suffer from weathering. Colours won't likely last long. There are other areas you could consider as places for tattoos on women but the above points cover the general torso. The important aspects to consider are that if you want to show it off, people have got to be able to see it!
Recently I've been pondering what my next blog should be, or more accurately what I should bitch about next. And this problem has risen to the top of the most recent complaints I have. So let me fill you in, I have a client, whose identity will be hidden, that has come in and gotten work done by me and liked the work they have come back for more. This client never wants to make an appointment only wants me to keep them updated if I have any cancellations they can fill and when I do they are never able to fill them. Recently they made an appointment to get a matching tattoo that I did on their other wrist. On the day of the appointment they changed their mind completely and I had to free hand a design right on their wrist. The client being a return customer paid using a promotional 30% off coupon which is no big deal and if you haven't signed up for the monthly Dynasty News Letter you totally should as it can save you mad cash. With the discount the total was about $54, the client only had a hundred dollar bill and $53 dollars if my memory serves correct. I gave them 5 $20 bills for the hundred but didn't have change as they were my first client. Seeing that I was having trouble finding the correct change they offered up the $53 if I was willing to eat the dollar shortage. And that is what I did. Its much easier to lose $1 then to scramble around for change. They thanked me and left. Now I'm not all about tipping your tattoo artist but, it's always nice and given the fact that they not only got a discount but were given 5 $20's and I let them slide on a dollar I would not have been upset to get a tip. But hey that's how it goes sometimes, and I've always said that a good recommendation is better then a tip any day.
Then I received this message on Facebook.
Then I received this message on Facebook.
- ClientHey after looking at this tat I hate to complain but can you fix the "shadow" it look like it belongs can you trace it to make it look like the brown part of bracelet? I'm so sorry
- 12:19pmScott TerrySure let it heal and ill fix it
- 12:20pmClientTy will it cost me anything?
- 12:34pmScott TerryNopeTues march 12 2pm
- 12:36pmClientOkThanks again, just know I love it except for that part
Even though this client shorted me a dollar and the part of the tattoo they wanted "fixed" wasn't anything wrong with the tattoo but something they didn't like the look of it is always my first reaction to make the client happy and why charge them? I'd rather the client be happy. So I scheduled them and got them in "fixed" the area they didn't like and darkened up a few things. And as I promised I didn't charge them a dime. Again, no tip was offered and neither was the dollar they shorted me on the initial tattoo.I'd like to take this time to mention also that while I was tattooing them they were talking to someone else in the room and bad mouthing other local studios they had gotten work from calling the artists "assholes".
- 6:41pmClientI hate to contact you again, but, the correction you did to my worst tat...the color didn't seem to take, it's very light...
- 10:15pmClientWrist tat*
- 3:10pmClientSo, did my typo piss u off? Lol I'm not trying to be a chronic complainer and believe me if it was something I could just live with I would but honestly it doesn't look good...
She sends me a picture of a horribly faded tattoo.
- 8:28amScott TerryWow it really shouldn't look like that I would have to say that maybe my aftercare wasn't followed. I'd be happy to touch it up but since I've done so once already I'll have to charge you the shop minimum, $60. Stop in whenever and drop off your $50 deposit and fyi I'm booked up about two weeks so if you want to get in I'd do it rather soon.
- 8:33amClientSeriously I did everything I was suppose to do and I have to pay??? That's not really very fair. I paid in full for this tat and not by any fault of my own the color didn't take, I'm sorry but I'm not willing to put out any more money its not fair
- 12:47pmScott TerryYou didn't pay in full... you actually shorted me a dollar.
- 1:21pmScott TerryAnd technically feet and hands aren't covered under our free touch ups but I've done it once already. So its not fair for me to first not get paid in full then do not one but two touch ups for free using my supplies that I'm not being reimbursed for.
- 3:57pmClientOh I'm sorry I didn't get that memo I thought people stood behind their work... Thanks anyway I guess I'll just have to live with it!Thanks !
- 4:16pmScott TerryThe skin on the hands and feet differ from other parts of the body and much like fingers and lips studios don't offer the same gaurantee we offer on say an arm. I've never said we don't stand behind our work or that i wouldnt help you. But I will have to charge you.
- 4:55pmClientHow is charging me $60 (shop minimum) helping me out? Unless with that $60.00 minimum you add something to it for me...
- 7:41amClientI've been thinking about your explanation and you really should tell people upon getting these types of tats about your "no guarantee" because if I had know I may have thought twice about getting It on my wrist, telling me once the problem occurred was kinda a moot point. Believe me, I'm only disputing this with you because I honestly do believe I'm right, I understand your point as well however, why should I have to pay for something that was in no way my fault? I mean really Scott...the bow you did on my other wrist came out beautifully and is my favorite tattoo which is what made me choose you to do another for me and what made me recommend you to a few of my friends. If you are going to stand firm about charging me then I guess this will just have to be a lesson learned on my behalf but if that is going to be the case when someone looks at this tat and comments on the flaw I will have to be honest with them and also, not that it would really matter to you I'm sure, find another tattoo shop to have any further tats done...
- 8:19amScott TerryAnd good morning to you too. I have offered a solution, one that isn't satisfactory to you. I am sure that before I did your other tattoo I told you of the issues associated with tattooing the backs of hands as I am pretty on point with being brutally honest with people about size and location of tattoos that could effect their longevity. I don't believe that the price you paid for the original tattoo (which you did short me a dollar) was outrageous in fact is was most likely less then I'd charge someone else because you have been a return client of mine. I've already done one touch up for free and will gladly darken the tattoo for an additional studio minimum which I think is extremely fair given the circumstances. I'm sorry if you feel as though I'm not doing enough and if you choose to go to another studio then I'm sorry you feel this way but wish you the best of luck.
- 8:29amClientI will be sure to have that dollar to you as soon as possible!
So this is where the situation stands. This blog was not written in any attempt to exacerbate this situation. I merely wanted the facts known. Every attempt at hiding this individuals identity has been taken. The only changes that were made were the removal of any pictures and names. I've tried to be professional and resolve the situation. I never want someone to be unhappy with something I did on their body. That feeling sucks. However, I do feel the need to report the facts when someone feels as though I've done them wrong. This is a business and my equipment and my time are worth something. I don't think the studio minimum of $60 is too much to pay since this person has already had one free session. At this point I feel as though I've remained professional but you can not always make people happy unless you give them everything for free and even then who knows... So once again, a BIG thank you to all of my amazing clients who support me and my work. I love my job and its you that make me happy to come in and do what I do daily. Take care folks and thanks for reading.
For tattoo lovers, no area is off limits. Much like a painter, the body becomes your canvas, and every part of your body is free to get the tattoo design of your choice. For those that love tattoos but have not yet decided on the best part of their body to get their next tat design, here is a list of the 25 best places to get a tattoo, as well as a few options for your next design. 1) Biceps/Upper Arm Perhaps one of the most common places to get a tattoo, a variety of different designs can go on the bicep area. It is one of the most visible sections of your body (assuming you do not often wear long sleeves) and, more importantly, anything goes. Because the area is so easy to hide, it does not matter what tattoo design you choose. Flaming hearts, skulls, love for your mom - there is no limit to the artwork you choose. 2) Ankle Ankles, especially on women (but fine for men) are a great place to get a tattoo. The key here is to choose a tattoo design that is small and easy to make out, like a star or a heart. If you choose something too complicated, it looks to others as though you have a skin color problem. 3) Wrist One of the more popular tattoo designs these days is to get a bracelet inked on your arm. People like to switch their accessories all the time, but for those that simply like seeing some color on their wrists, this is a great place to get a design. 4) Lower Back Yet another popular location with women, a tattoo on the lower back has gotten a bad rep of late, but it is still a great place to get a more intricate and symmetrical design, especially one that doesn't have a specific meaning. Tribal tattoos are most common, but Chinese lettering is very popular here. 5) Chest For men, a tattoo on the chest can be anything. The chest is the place that most men get their larger tattoo designs - as well as an area of skin used as an extension for another piece of artwork that stretches across the entire body. For women, this is less often the case. Most often women place a small tattoo above the breast, rather than something more elaborate. Be careful what you get, as sagging can completely ruin a more elaborate design, and this is far more common on women than men. 6) Back of the Neck Like the ankle, the back of the neck is a better place for a small tattoo design, as anything too gaudy could give the impression of being a skin discoloration. But the back of the neck is a good place for a star, a cross, and a variety of other symmetrical designs. 7) Belly Button The belly button is one of the most unappreciated areas on the entire body. The same goes with body art, where the belly button can be decorated in multiple ways that are both sexy and artistic. 8) Wrist The wrist is yet another area of the body that seems as though it should be used more than it is. Nearly everyone - both male and female - wear some type of bracelet on a daily basis. Most of the time that bracelet is only replaced when it is lost or broken. You can easily decorate your wrist area with a tattoo design, providing you with essentially a permanent bracelet that will never be lost and can always be added to. 9) Feet Unlike the ankle, the foot is a great place for an elaborate design of your choosing. Most of the day you have socks on, and the skin color of your feet often doesn't match the tone of your legs, which see more sun. For that reason, your feet often stand out when they are bare already. So why not decorate them with an attractive piece of artwork that you can show off to others? 10) Fingers You have the choice here between an elaborate design that covers an entire finger, or a smaller design that resembles a ring, much in the same way you can decorate your wrists with a bracelet. Full designs that cover an entire finger are often very intriguing, but be sure and check to see how they change the way your hands look before you complete one. 11) Shoulders The shoulders are a great place for a tattoo design, especially one that is more decorative than an item (for example, more artistic than simply a skull or something more concrete). Shoulder tattoos often resemble the design style of those on the lower back, as both tend to have the same interesting artistic swing. Tribal tattoos are especially common. 12) Mons Pubis Some women like to get a tattoo on the mons pubis, which is the small mound of skin just above the female genitals. There are several designs that can actually look quite good in this area, but be warned that getting inked there can be very painful. 13) Eyeballs It happens. Some people enjoy getting a small tattoo on their eyeball. Let this be the last place you get a tattoo, as it is likely the most painful and there are very few designs that truly stand out on the soft tissue. 14) Buttocks An incredibly smooth area that few people are going to see unless you let them? A great place for whatever tattoo you desire. The buttocks has a lot of skin is clearly visible, with few bumps that could mess up your design. If you have a specific design that you want more than anything and you are not sure if it will look good anywhere else, the buttocks is the way to go. This area is prone to sagging though, so if you needed an excuse to go to the gym, there you go. 15) Upper Back Like the buttocks, the upper back has a great deal of skin and few bumps that can ruin your design. It also does not sag as much. But as is often the case with body art, when something is as visible as your upper back, it is usually a good idea to choose a tattoo design that is more symmetrical. The upper back is also a great place for words and phrases, should you be fond of that type of artwork. 16) Forearms There are no special rules about forearm tattoos. Almost every design style seems to work, and rarely does any of the artwork look as though it is a skin discoloration. That said, they are quite visible, so you should make sure your workplace is okay with your ink. 17) Stomach Your belly is a great canvas. It has a lot of skin, it is only visible when you want it to be, and when it expands from age/weight gain it usually does so in a fairly fluid manner, so that the design stretches with it. 18) Scrotum Some men like to get tattoos on their scrotum. It can be painful and few people are going to see it, but hey - it's skin, and it's yours. Knock yourself out. 19) Love Handles Often times the side of your stomach is used to expand other designs, such as those on your chest, back, or stomach. But the side of your body should not be overlooked, and your love handle area can easily fit its own design if you have something unique that will work there. 20) Hamstrings The back of your leg tends to stay very fit as you age, so it is a good place to get tattoo designs if you are worried about sagging or stretching ruining the design. Tribal tattoo designs do not work as well here as they do in other areas, but you can still find several decent, more elaborate designs that fit well in this area. 21) Calves Calves are a lot like the hamstrings, except there is less skin to fit the design, so it is usually better to keep these designs slightly more simple, unless you are planning on enveloping the entire leg. Some of the more fun designs seem on the calves include peacock feathers and Chinese watercolor. 22) Face The most devout tattoo lovers use their entire body as their canvas, and the face is still a part of your body. If it wasn't for the stigma that is associated with those that get face tattoos, one could bet that they would be more common, but unfortunately face tattoos may make it hard to get a job or make a favorable first impression with someone more conservative. That said, don't forget that you can always create very small designs that fit well in these areas. Some people like to put a small star at the edge of their eyebrow, and these are not very gaudy and more socially acceptable. 23) Top of the Head If you can commit to being bald, you can commit to a tattoo on your scalp. For many, the tattoo is an extension of one on the neck, but once again, it's still an area of canvas that is perfect for any type of body art. 24) Front of the Neck One thing to avoid with any tattoo designs on the front of the neck - you want to make sure it does not blend with a chest tattoo and look as though it is some type of extensive body hair. 25) Perineum The final place you can get inked is a place that not even your lovers might see. The perineum is the area of skin between your genitals and your anus - barely viewable even to those that are looking for it. Yet it is still an available patch of skin, and is a fun place to put a small tattoo that is a secret for only you to enjoy. This area is more visible on women than men, so women should be careful to put something that one can appreciate - such as a star, or something else cute and small - while men should make sure that they choose a tattoo design that will not look diseased, like a word or less elaborate drawing. Your Body is Your Canvas When it comes to tattoo designs, Every patch of skin on your entire body is yet another space that can be filled with the artwork of your choice. Despite what is outlined above, there are no rules for these areas. If you are passionate about a type of tattoo, and are certain it will not negatively affect your life - get it done. You have nothing to lose.
Whether you just want a nice thigh tattoo design, or some very original leg tattoos, you'll look for them the same way. The bad part is that only 5% of people know how to look for galleries that actually have tons of high quality artwork. The rest of you will use the exact same method,which will drag you to so many generic laced galleries that your head will spin. Fixing this is pretty darn easy, though. The first thing we need to take a look at is how you normally look for thigh tattoo artwork, or leg tattoos in general. Are you by any chance relying on a search engine? I jumped to that conclusion because over 90% of the population goes right over to one when they want lists of artwork galleries. This is a a huge mistake, though. They just aren't reliable, at all. They rarely include the better and larger galleries in those lists. It doesn't matter what style you're looking for. If you want a generic thigh tattoo, or if you want to see thousands of cookie cutter leg tattoos, you can keep using them. That's all you'll find, though. If you "don't" want to sift through hoards of generic junk, you'll have to change how you look for artwork. Best of all, it's so darn easy to do. All that you need are big forums. That's it. With the help of their archives and their topics search tool, a whole new world of thigh tattoo designs and leg tattoos can be opened up. Long story short, it's your tried and true way to uncover so many of the amazing artwork galleries you've been missing out on. All you have to do is jump into the archives and use that search tool. This will pull up all kinds of topics about tattoo artwork. Hundreds of them should come up. Just jump in, get comfortable and have a bit of fun scanning through some of them. You will run into all kinds of information, including a whole lot of names and links of the great artwork sites other people have been lucky enough to find. It's your path to high quality thigh tattoo designs and leg tattoos that were made by real artists. Once you see "real" artwork, you'll never look at generic designs the same way.
When you slide over to your computer to find thigh tattoo designs or leg tattoos, are you seeing decent art? Probably not. It all deals with how you start "looking" for galleries, which will determine if you see generic stuff, or if you see fresh, high quality stuff. Here's the way to make darn sure you find great thigh tattoo collections and leg tattoos that are crisp and well drawn. Not many people jump onto their computer and start salivating over the fact that they'll be looking at thousands of cookie cutter designs. Most people get angry when this happens to them, and the worst part is that this "is" happening to most of us. In fact, it's around 90%. You can stop this, though. You just need to watch out for what you use to look for thigh tattoo designs, or any styles of leg tattoos. To put it in plain English, you need to avoid search engines. It just won't work. The lists that they generate nowadays are downright awful. They are always long lists of completely generic galleries, where your only option is to click through bundles of cookie cutter images. Like I said, though, you don't have to go through that. You have a much better option when looking for fresh, original thigh tattoo designs and crisp leg tattoos. This option would be forums. Big forums to be more exact. You won't need to get involved with them in any way. You don't need to join any of them. You just need one thing from a big forum. You need the archive section, which is the key to everything. It's where you will have instant and total access to hundred of various topics on this very subject. If you want to see real thigh tattoo designs and fresh, high quality leg tattoos, spend a couple moments browsing these topics. People from all over the world have chimed in and shared their input, including where they've recently found amazing galleries.
Have you been contemplating on a back tattoo design but do not know where to begin your search? With the tons of resources available online, the process can be overwhelming, seriously! I have experienced it myself and I ended up confused, disappointed and empty-handed after clicking through each and every website I found on the web. The ones that I found are the generic and cookie-cutter type of designs that I would not even want to be tattooed on my body. Have you thought of looking at books in the library? I am not talking about tattoo magazines or tattoo books because the designs there are definitely not unique anymore. I am referring particularly to books with colored pictures, artworks or illustrations of the design you have in mind. For example, if you are thinking of a flower tat design, refer to coffee book tables in the library that have beautiful pictures that can serve as inspiration for your tattoo theme. If you want a zodiac sign tat, refer to astrological books that have illustrations of symbols and glyphs related to your sign. I am sure it would be not hard to find books in your local library or bookstore to serve as your reference. The second place is the tattoo studio wherein you can request your artist to sketch a back tattoo design for you. He can draw an image for you based on the concept you have in mind and instantly, you can finally have a unique design for your body. A skilled tattoo artist can turn your vision into reality without the worry of sporting something you share with thousands of other people. There is nothing more exciting than creating your own tattoo design. After all, its something very personal to you and you want to have your soul and touches into it. However, being creative can be hard at times. My advice is to check out the paid tattoo membership that you can find online. There are several out there with tons of high-quality and original artworks. To make it your own, choose a design close enough to what you want to accomplish in your body art then tweak it and apply your own personal touches. You can change the color, improve the styles or combine several elements to personalize the design.
Whether you admit it or not, one of the very reasons why us men want to get tattoo in the first place is to be attractive to the ladies. We want to look cool yet sexy at the same time and we believe that an amazing piece of skin art can help us achieve this purpose. However, the wrong design and execution can make us appear uncool and unattractive. It is therefore important to give your tat journey careful planning and forethought so there will be no regret in the end. Animal Instinct There are different kinds of animals that symbolize qualities and characteristics that men wish to possess all the time. These are qualities like bravery, strength, speed and wisdom. The powerful felines like tigers, leopards, lion and jaguars can create authoritative and commanding statement when rendered as skin art. Birds like swallow, eagle and dove, on the other hand can express flight, freedom and peace. The mythical dragon, cunning snake and fearful scorpion all possess qualities like fearlessness and wildness. Choose what quality you specifically want to emanate so you can decide which animal symbol to go for. Tribal Art Tribal art would never lose their appeal because they rooted from tribes of pre-industrial times where tattoos are part of their social and religious values. However, rather than going for just some random tribal art you found on the web, make this tattoo as authentic and interesting as possible. You can do that by defining which kind of tribal art you would want to be inked on your body, perhaps something to do with your heritage. Will it be from the Maoris of New Zealand, Samoans from the Polynesians or maybe Aztecs from Mexico? There are actually tattoo artists who specialize in this certain kind of genre as they can be complicated and intricate to draw on the body. Old School Appeal Old school tattoos seem to be making a comeback these days, perhaps some people would not want to go as elaborate or as intricate when it comes to their skin art. Moreover, these traditional tattoo piece seem to have never lost their appeal as their message are clear and outright stated. Symbols like skull, rose, cross, pin-up girl and heart be charming and pretty as long as you work with a talented tattoo artist to execute these designs perfectly.
